"It is a moral outrage that in the wake of the extensive denunciation of Stalin's crimes throughout what was once called the Soviet bloc, not a single Stalinist secret police functionary, concentration camp commander, torturer, or executioner has been placed on trial for Stalinist crimes."
-Z. Brzezinski, Out of Control.

"The opening of the secret Soviet archives - and also of the archives of the formerly Communist East European states - as well as open access to hitherto witheld socioeconomic statistics reveal in fact that communist totalitarianism was more criminal, more brutal, and socially more destructive than alleged by even its most severe critics. It was a system not only of mass murder - on a scale without precedent in human history - but of the deliberate demoralization of society and of the reckless devastation of the physical environment. In brief, both the soul and the body of society were its victims."
ibid

"In brief, the failed effort to build communism in the twentieth century consumed the lives of almost 60,000,000 human beings, making communism the most costly human failure in all of history."
ibid

...and the holocaust the most profitable and enshrined.

I will leave you with the thoughts of Alexander Solzhenitsyn which I posted on another thread a short while ago. The Soviet Union was indeed the most brutal society, the excesses far worse in orders of magnitude than what was placed on the shoulders of Nationalsozialist Deutschland. One must also keep in mind the 45 million murdered in Communist China; this brings the number of murdered by Communist Socialist regimes ☭ to 111 million. In this context the plight of der Juden seems somewhat minuscule.

The aforementioned 60 million in Brzezinski's brief summary includes China.

Hi, David. Nice to see you up and around. Ever going to make your way back to Skeptics?
Oh not for awhile, it is much too exciting watching Mitch McConnell and Adam Schiff arguing about rules for the impeachment trial.
